I had always heard that reacting was never a solution. This was the first of many proofs that meditation had evolved my personality and my awareness to a new level. It has been my ego (worries and thoughts about the future, overthinking) and super-ego (thoughts about the past, baggage, conditionings) that were creating reaction.
A pure and truthful perspective can only be seen in the Present.
The impure, untrue, negative thoughts have to be cleared and forgiven daily to make room for a clear, uncluttered perspective of any situation.
Abraham Lincoln made so much sense when he said,
«Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends? »
A powerful sentiment that I could now relate to my own life. I can see them differently in my mind not as enemies that require grudges but as tests for my own growth. I had always thought I was positive. But I was finally discovering a true source of conflict resolution. I am becoming a detached witness which I never thought was possible. I had always admired others for dealing with conflict effectively in a calm way.
Now I am starting to Nurture this (sahaj!) Quality in me.
